Greyhound has offered a new solution in their on-going attempts to cancel bus service to the North.

During open public meetings with the BC Passenger Transportation Board in Prince George yesterday, Greyhound Senior Vice-President Stuart Kendrick stated that the solution to public transit in the north could lie in local government funding.

The bus service suggests that the board authorize a Connecting Communities Fund to provide transport between hubs in the north.

Kendrick added that the government already pays nearly 20 million dollars annually to keep the highway bus system operating.

A decision on whether or not to allow Greyhound to pull out of its routes is expected to be made in January.
